The scores have been tabulated for Springfield Business Journal’s 2023 Dynamic Dozen, recognizing the 12 fastest-growing companies in the Ozarks.
The D12 companies, in alphabetical order, are Citizens Memorial Hospital; CoxHealth; Enviromental Works Inc.; Epic Strategies LLC; GigSalad LLC; Little Sunshine’s Enterprises Inc.; Next Level Solutions; Old Missouri Bank; Keep Supply; Russell Cellular Inc.; Sun Solar LLC; and Superior Rents & Sales Inc.
A countdown of company rankings to No. 1 will be held May 18 during a reception and awards ceremony at Oasis Hotel & Convention Center.
Also at the ceremony, SBJ will honor professionals with individual awards and present the Judges’ Choice Award to Keller Williams Greater Springfield.
Determined by an independent panel of judges, the individual honors are awarded in seven categories:
The Dynamic Dozen fast-growth companies are determined by a numbers-based formula that awards points for both annual revenue and percentage growth in 2020, 2021 and 2022. In their applications, eligible companies reported gross revenue of at least $250,000 in each year, and they must operate headquarters within 50 miles of Springfield or must have provided segmented revenues for the 50-mile radius. Tiffany Nichols, senior vice president of State Bank of Southwest Missouri, verified the numbers in the D12 applications.
Profiles of the companies and individuals will appear in a publication debuting at the event and distributed in SBJ’s May 22 edition. For more information and past honorees, visit SBJ.net/D12.
